one year dating anniversary gifts for her - Cort dating guitar
Both say "Crafted in Indonesia" but with different fonts.My theory is that there is a second Samick location that produces these guitars, and to distinguish there is a different source, the letters were switched around. In a couple of instances I have noticed guitars with an orange sticker with a number, that does not conform to the standard number structure.These similarities lead me to believe they are made under the same management (S=Samick), but probably two separate locations.
"IC" are made by Cort while IS are made by Samick, both in Indonesia.
The source of the Minis with serial numbers starting with "SI" have been difficult to research.
There is no master list to correlate to a model number, these are consecutive serialized numbers only.
If you're trying to figure out what model something is from the serial number, figure out what year it is then go to the catalog library for the corresponding year [or year before or after] to find the model.
As I recall they are 10 or 11 characters, all numerals.
This is a relatively common practice when non-conforming guitars are sold in bulk to a dealer/middle-man who refurbish them and sell them to the open market.In 2008 Fender started having "Fender" branded instruments made in the Cort facility in Indonesia for the first time.The new series of guitars were given serial number starting with "ICF" - with the letter "F" for Fender.I have been looking at many Mini Strat listings by now, and I can not remember ever seeing a black Mini that did not have an "IC" serial number.Red I have seen all three, but "SI" seems to be dominant.Here I'll try and cast some light on the different Squier Mini Serial Numbers with a few examples. The fonts are an exact match in size and type with the IS00300077 above and has the same quality control sticker.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
